How to Make a Valentine's Envelope

How to Make a Valentine’s Envelope

Hello, my dear Photoshop brushes and DiY addicts!

Valentine’s day is near and now is the right time to get ready and prepare some nice surprises for the ones we love. We all know that the best gifts are the ones that we prepare by ourselves. So, for today I prepared a little DiY tutorial on how to make a Valentine’s day envelope. Envelope is not a gift by itself but a self-made envelope with a nice message inside to accompany it, well, that’s something completely different. Your beloved one will love you for this.

First of all, to make a proper Valentine’s day envelope, you will need a proper paper with some cool Valentine’s day design theme.

Sponsor of this article (and that would be me) recommends some of the High Quality Photoshop brushes by Graphics-Illustrations.Com .

I guess that “Valentine’s (21+21) Second Edition + 21 PNG files” would be the best choice for the occasion.

OK. Once you selected the brushes you will use for design and printed the envelope paper it’s time to make an envelope.

I took these photos to show you how to do it:

And here on this link there are some additional explanations ->

Fold the paper it in a way shown above.

Photoshop Brushes in Action: Envelope Design

Two weeks ago, I had this idea to create a unique envelope for my sisters-in-law birthday. But, in the meantime, she left for vacation and now she’s enjoying Californian hotels :)

So, I still have a chance to make a unique envelope for her birthday and it will wait for her when she’s back!

So, you guessed, today’s “download and print” freebie is - envelope template.

The original size of this envelope template is 8″x5″ on the 12″x12″ paper size, but you can print it on any size (like I did) just use “fit to paper” option on your Print window. For this envelope design I used Swirled Floral Photoshop Edges Brushes set and Floral Shapes Photoshop Brushes set. Both available in  our little shop.

Now, take a look at my short photo story on how to make an envelope. It’s fun and easy so, enjoy!

1. Print the envelope template and cut out the envelope shape. I used fancy-edge scissors just to cover my possible cutting mistakes :)

2. Fold the paper carefully and try to match (as much as you can) the illustrations on the bottom flap and top flap of the envelope. Apply 1/4″ wide double-sided tape along the side edges of the back, starting below the curves.
